Vernacular names
English: spur-throated grasshoppers

The subfamily Catantopinae is a group of insects classified under family Acrididae.[1] Genera such as Macrotona may sometimes called "spur-throated grasshoppers",[2] but that name is also used for grasshoppers from other subfamilies, including the genus Melanoplus from the Melanoplinae. Indeed, the delimitation of these two subfamilies needs restudy: the Podismini for example are sometimes placed here, sometimes in the Melanoplinae.
